General informations

found in arch/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_UPROBES:

Help text

Uprobes is the user-space counterpart to kprobes: they enable instrumentation applications (such as 'perf probe') to establish unintrusive probes in user-space binaries and libraries, by executing handler functions when the probes are hit by user-space applications.

( These probes come in the form of single-byte breakpoints, managed by the kernel and kept transparent to the probed application. )
